How to Break Writer’s Block Today & Where To Get Ideas

As the sole author, illustrator and publisher of my own indie manga series, people often ask me how I achieve my prodigious productivity and motivation. I outlined my process in this new book.

Every other book on writer’s block gives you the same old techniques, such as “just start writing”. But what they don’t tell you is how those techniques work–that is, if they work at all. In How To Break Writer’s Block Today & Where To Get Ieas, I provide a solution that works instantly, every time, and explains how it works.

By balancing philosophical and theoretical explorations of the creativity, this book is filled with hard, practical actions to jump-start your creative instinct and start writing right now.

601 Body Language Ideas for Novels (Writers Like Quickies, Too)


Need to come up with some fresh, new ways to display your characters’ feelings and movements?

A story without body language is about as exciting as a low-sodium Triscuit. Yet, communicating emotions to readers through body language and other non-verbal clues can be time-consuming. This is why 601 Body Language Ideas for Novels was developed as an abridged read. It’s from O’Neal’s Writers Like Quickies, Too series, created to help you search for body language terms by emotion. It’s a handy-dandy word reference for up-and-coming writers, although experienced novelists may also reap some benefits. Let’s face it, we all require assistance sparking the imagination now and then.

Use it on the go, during your lunch break, for a mean case of writer’s block, for outsourced writing assignments from fiverr, Upwork, or any other freelance or SEO platform as deadlines creep closer—or use it simply because you want to kick butt with the whole “show, don’t tell thing.”

SAMPLE PROMPTS

Cozy Mystery
A statue of the town’s founder (who happens to be your character’s ancestor) is vandalized. The police quickly brush it off as teenage mischief. However, your character recognizes something in the evidence that makes her think the crime is personal. Does her family have any old rivalries or enemies? What family secrets might her investigation uncover? What other crimes could the vandal commit to prove your character’s suspicions?

Legal
A lawyer wins her client’s case. He is declared innocent, despite being guilty of a serious crime. Although freed and unable to be re-tried, the client fears the lawyer will expose the truth about his guilt and bring him harm another way. He begins stalking the lawyer to ensure her silence and perhaps turns violent in his paranoia. How does the lawyer react to his harassment? Does she feel guilty about setting him free? Can she prevent him from committing a worse crime against her?


NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

If you’re in a creative rut, know that I’ve been there, too. I spent far too long struggling with my inability to write, and it negatively affected several aspects of my life. That’s why I wrote 100 Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense Writing Prompts – because I know what it’s like to feel creatively empty, and I want to help other writers beat their own blocks.

In this booklet, I’ve combined techniques from my days in university (I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing) with the real-world lessons I learned from writing my own fiction novels. The result? A list of 100 prompts to get your creative gears spinning. But that’s all I can do. The rest is up to you.
